PLEASE GOD BY PERSISTING! Jesus encourages us to KEEP ASKING, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU” [Mt 7:7 HC]{Mt 7:7}. Most translators ignore the Greek tense used with the verb ‘to ask’ but it is very important in understanding Jesus to know that He is teaching us to KEEP ASKING” or as another translation said “CONTINUE TO ASK”  [Mt 7:7 IC]. As Jesus teaches how important it is for us to do what God “WANTS” [Mt 7:21 GN], it is wise to only persist in asking for what we are certain that God wants for us. How often should we KEEP ASKING”? If it is a life and death concern, perhaps we might ask every time we breathe. Remember when asking to not tell God how to answer your request but let God do it His way. One time Jesus told a story encouraging our persistence and concluded by stating “CONTINUE TO ASK, AND GOD WILL GIVE TO YOU” [Lk 11:9 IC]. God is good and He loves each of us and loves to help us. Do you trust God and keep asking? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
